Question about Toshiba 20AF46 20" TV

1 Answer

Constant changes in picture colors.

My Toshiba 20af44 20" TV is only 2 years old and has a major picture color problem. It constantly changes from great normal colors to all green, then overly bright, then muted, almost black & white. Does this sound like an inexpensive repair problem or should I start shopping for a new TV?? The warranty is no longer valid.

It is a 20" TV set and will most likly, im afraid to tell you, cost more to fix then it is worth. The problem is a bad Picture tube, an intermittant CRT socket or the video jungle IC is intermittant. If you want to invest in an estimate, check out first if it will go towards the repair, as then maybe you can get it fixed at a good price, as long as the picture tube is not the problem Good Luck

My Philips Plamsa won't turn on, has a black screen but the power light is on. There is also a constant clicking noise. Any ideas of what this might be. The tv is a couple of years old.



The picture is White or Black:

1. Adjust picture setting such as brightness or contrast

2. Check the color settings

3. Check to ensure you cable connections are connected properly.

Have new 55ux600u toshiba. Hooked up a one year old wii and get no color


The 55ux600u toshiba hdtv has a setting that needs to be changed with the wii in order to get color.
1. Click 'Menu' on the TV remote 2. Arrow over to 'Preferences' 3. Arrow down to 'AV Connection' 4. Click 'OK' 5. Arrow down to 'AV Input' 6. Change setting from 'ColorStream HD' to 'Video' by clicking the right arrow. 7. Hit the'Exit' button on the TV remote.
This will give you color for your Wii. You will have to change this setting back in order to view DVDs in color. :-)

Projection television acting like an old picture tube TV.


Yes, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:
